Christian editors around the world have been checking out C.A.R.D. - Christian Article Registry Depository –which has been very pleasing to all.
C.A.R.D was released on Wednesday 5 November by the Gold Coast's Josh Hinds and his IT company "Spiders Touch". It is where editors can find a Christian writer or article. At their fingertips (so to speak).
And already some luminaries in Christian media have become part of C.A.R.D.

C.A.R.D. is beneficial
This website invites Christian authors and writers to enter their specific details onto C.A.R.D. with their name, profile and article details.
Once this is done, then anyone wanting to access work by that author, or on that topic, only needs to make one click and they have access to the plethora of information on that person and their professional works. This applies to all those who have submitted their details to C.A.R.D.
Josh Hinds explains that the site is interactive, and it provides easy access by both "surname" and "genre" (or "topic"). The instructions are extremely easy to follow.
Editors looking for someone to write on a particular subject can check out these six or any of the 80 Christian writers / authors currently listed on C.A.R.D. Likewise anyone seeking further material for a bible study or wanting a particular angle can check out these Christians writers / authors.

It all began when I met with Josh Hinds over coffee at Coolangatta on the Gold Coast. I was pondering an idea to provide editors a one stop shop for Christian writers or articles.
I have often sought an article and to track it down sometimes takes an age through the various internet search engines, so I thought that there might be an easier way, at least in the first instant.
Josh Hinds took that idea away with him to think through how such an outcome might be delivered to editors and other interested people.
C.A.R.D. was the outcome. We invite the reader to check out Christian Article Registry Depository. As there are many writers and articles available.
